Acrylic processing aid is usually used for the fusion and homogeneity of polyvinyl chloride. Because it offers quicker merging, increased production yield, greater melt flexibility and strength, less plate-out, improved surface shine and finishing, better thickness, and improved tensile strength, acrylic processing aid is employed by PVC makers.
Acrylic Processing Aid Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, advantages, opportunities, restraints and challenges. All of this is discussed in detail as below:
- Increasing Demand for Acrylic Processing Aid
Growing demand for affordable tools to assist in the production of plastic goods, rising product usage across a range of end-use applications, and the prevalence of affordable and flexible materials are some of the factors supporting the growth of the acrylic processing aid market over the forecast period. On the other hand, expanding applications from the automotive and construction sectors will further increase a number of favorable factors that will contribute to the expansion of the acrylic processing aid market over the time covered by the forecast period. The main purposes of acrylic processing assistance are to improve process ability, decrease the shark skin effect during extrusion, and boost plastic materials flow. In important end-use industries like packaging, building & construction, automotive, consumer products, and others, use of acrylic processing aid in plastics is gaining traction.
Furthermore, the comparing PVC to more traditional materials like metals, glass, paper, and ceramics, it has better mechanical, electrical, abrasion, chemical, and other qualities. It promotes quicker fusion, higher production output, improved melt strength and elasticity, decreased plate-out and melt texture, improved surface gloss and finishing, better thickness, and greater tensile strength, PVC manufacturers use acrylic as a processing aid during the fabrication process. Additionally, the expansion of the end-use industries is projected to bolster the market's growth.
- New Technologies and Investments
Furthermore, market players are further developing new technologies for polymerization and are also to produce better-quality plastics with enhanced features extend profitable opportunities to the market players in the forecast period of 2022 to 2029. Additionally, the growing investments and funding for the product will further expand the future growth of the acrylic processing aid market.
- Lack Of Funding
However, due to a lack of funding, small businesses rarely invest in research and development activities. This has a detrimental effect on the overall growth of acrylic processing aid in the area.
- Huge Repairing Costs
Additionally, the majority of the pipes and fittings are underground and therefore any malfunction or failure could result in much more expensive repairs, which will further challenge the acrylic processing aid market growth rate.

COVID-19 Impact on Acrylic Processing Aid Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the acrylic processing aid market. The need for the acrylic processing aid used in the processing of plastics has decreased as a result of the decline in demand for plastics from end-use industries such as automotive, building & construction, consumer products, packaging, and so forth. Industries are projected to be fully operational by the end of 2020 after being opened up in Q3 2020 but with a small workforce.
The US Census Bureau reports that April's home projects were down 19% from the same month last year. Over that time, PVC consumption decreased by 25%. Due to a lack of funding, several projects have gone undone. With the aforementioned considerations, it is anticipated that the acrylic processing aid market would expand slowly in 2020 before reviving with positive development over the projected term. With the aforementioned considerations in mind, the market for acrylic processing aids is anticipated to expand negatively in 2020 before rebounding with positive growth throughout the course of the forecast period.
- In July 2020, A new process aid from Arkema called PLASTISTRENGTH® 562 NA is intended to assist PVC converters in striking a better balance between formulation cost and processing performance. This novel technology offers constant PVC fusion and filler integration, increased melt power, and effective processing in both rigid and semi-rigid extruded or calendared PVC products.
